The Perfect Hostess Gift: Long Weekend Edition


Happy Monday! And how was the weekend? We rolled in late last night from a few lovely days at our friends' lake house, so just a quick hello and hostess gift idea this morning. Pulling together just the right little something to show your gratitude starts a visit out on just the right note.  How about a vintage champagne bucket (found at Watson Kennedy) to celebrate the graciousness of wonderful friends? Add a bottle wrapped in a pretty linen towel, a "thank you" ribbon and gift tag made from a bubbly-themed illustration, and you're all set to kick off a sparklingly fun weekend-long party. 


"C" is for Celebrate. "C" is for Champagne. "C" is for Cherished Friends.

Here's to wonderful weekends! What's your favorite way to say thanks when you're a house guest?

  1. Hello,

    This is a fabulous gift and so beautifully and imaginatively presented. Shampoo as our good friend always refers to Champagne is such a fun gift. Perhaps it is the bubbles which always make one smile. As you say, the perfect start to any occasion.

    1. Wait, Heather, the book is supposed to be in your future, remember ;-) Of course you are always the wonderful hostess and I am sure your guests always feel so welcome. We would have loved to have you as part of our crew last weekend. Heidi, Angel, Penelope and Paloma were there and we spent time talking about our lovely day with you in Provence!

      Hope you have a beautiful week! XOXO

  6. Hi Jeanne!
    LOVE-ing this hostess gift idea Personally, champagne is a favorite of mine, but such a fun gift. The vintage cooler from our sweet friend's shop and that beautiful illustration take it to the highest level. Thoughtful, personalized and pulled together. Now doubt your friends love to see you coming and can't wait to invite you back!

    Cheers to a new week!
    xoxo Elizabeth
